    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett-Packard (Herndon, VA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Very quick. Had two phone interviews within a week and then the recruiter called me to set up an in-person interview with 5 members of the team, including the hiring manager, who I had initially interviewed with over the phone. I spent an hour and a half in a room with all 5 of them. I think this was a little out of the ordinary and only performed this way due to schedule challenges. I received a call within a couple days of the final interview to say that an offer was coming.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were mostly around culture and fit. Not a lot of behavioral questions.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I had another offer that I liked better. The HP offer was solid and I would have taken it if my other offer was not made.

    Primarily a behavioral based interview.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was already an HP employee. HP only negotiates if you have another offer and you plan to leave for it. They don't voluntarily give anyone much of a raise internally ever.
